So I think I just walked into a smokers dream. I have a member at my golf club that is high up in the corporate office of a large BBQ Chain where I live. We got to talking and I asked him about getting meat from him. He said he would just charge me his cost. He gave me a 6.5# butt and 3 slabs of spare ribs for $30 (ribs were 3# each). Everything was cryovaced. How much do restaurants usually pay per pound?
